Chimera here in fondy sells just the foam inserts by themselves, in a few shapes and sizes. Without the outer case, they are quite a bit cheaper.

Good to know, I'm heading to Chimera's in Appleton tomorrow night anyways, so I'll check then. Are there any craft stores that would sell them in bulk do you know?

Chimera sells the inserts that are thick foam with the serrated(?) cubes. They allow you to pull out parts of the foam to form fit the figures. If you find anywhere that sells those LMK!

The foam inserts at Chimera are like $8 each. I just bought the thickest for my Legion of [strike]Overpower[/strike] Everblight Warbeasts.

So last night, I took care of removing the paint from the 4 already painted figures I bought from that Jason guy you introduced me to. I of course was an idiot and didn't wear the latex/rubber gloves so I have the nice minor chemical burns on my hand. #-o

In any case, guess what? The Pinesol worked WAY better than the mineral spirits, or I should say the combination worked better. I had 4 figures to remove the paint from, so I soaked 2 in mineral spirits, and soaked the other 2 in Pinesol/Water (50/50 mix) overnight. When I went to scrub off the paint 20 hours or so later, it took a lot more scrubbing on the mineral spirits figures (as opposed to the Pinesol ones) to get the paint all off. However, I did notice that washing the cleaning drush in mineral spirits and then cleaning the Pinesol soaked figure worked even better than just water and Pinesol. It took longer than I expected, so I certainly will be careful when it comes to painting my figures so I don't have to go through this process again.

Greatest. Tool. Ever.

Makes pinning like 10x easier. I wanted something that had some power to it so my hand stopped being sore from the manual pin vice, but tools like a Dremel or whatnot had way too much torque/power. It took maybe 30 minutes to put the thing together (first power tool I've seen that requires assembly), but it was definitely worth it. Works like a dream, and much faster than the manual pin vice.

P.S. I bought mine from Amazon.com, but they are apparently out of stock now. I can bring it to the palooza if anyone wants to see it.
